So what are the greatest Summer Classics suggested by you?

Rachel Orr suggested Danzón No.2 by Márquez . 'Reminds me of balmy nights sitting outdoors with Prosecco and candles,' she said.

And Suzanne Cobb chose the Adagio from Spartacus by Khachaturian. 'Probably because of its association with The Onedin Line,' she said, 'it transports me onto a sailing ship splashing through gentle waves with sunbeams dancing on the water ahead of me.' 

Richard Jeffries suggested A Shropshire Lad by Butterworth . 'It's not heard that often, but I think this is a fantastically dreamy, summery piece of music,' he said.
